Changing the new product widget sort order in Magento

I'm using Magento for my webshop and my homepage uses a new products widget. I want to change the sort order for the products within the widget.

I searched for hours but I can't figure it out.

-------------Problems Reply------------

The block for displaying new product is:


see the function _beforeToHtml() default sorting is done by start date descending:

->addAttributeToSort('news_from_date', 'desc')

You can copy this block to code/local and replace it with position or the sort order you want... or extend it with a Magento extension.

You might want to search Magento Connect to see if there is any module that would fit your needs.
